Field and Stream


Back in 2012 Keith Mcafferty of Field and stream magazine contacted me about testing out the Ghillie Kettle. here is what he thought of it.

"Invented in the 1890s by Irish fisherman thirsting for a cup of Lochside tea. The Ghillie Kettle is the most efficient water boiler I’ve used. Burning a handful of twigs, I boiled a liter of water at 11 degrees below zero in 4 minutes. The Explorer Complete Kit runs $139 dollars with cook kit. That’s not cheap, but it’s a fail safe wilderness stove system and you will never have to spend a dime on fuel.”
